## thinktallthoughts one year ago Use the given graph to determine the limit, if it exists. Find limit as x approaches three from the left of f(x).

|dw:1402256259726:dw| since we are looking to the left of 3 you need to just look at the graph in the rectangle i drew around your graph

3. myininaya

what do your y-values approach as x approaches 3 (from the left)

4. thinktallthoughts

2? i think.

5. myininaya

Yep from what I can tell from the graph you are right

6. thinktallthoughts

how do you get the limit?

7. myininaya

you found it

8. thinktallthoughts

ohhh its just 2? awesome. thxx

9. myininaya

the left limit is 2 the question doesn't ask, but do you think you know what the right limit is?

10. thinktallthoughts

is it 3??

11. myininaya

from what I can tell from your graph you are correct now again the question doesn't ask, but the limit (the actual limit) doesn't exist since the left limit doesn't equal the right limit now you answered 2 to your question because it was indeed just looking for the left limit

thank you :)
